I maintain my innocence of this foul charge - this incident never happened.
This is complete fabrication - coming from a political conspiracy to stop my political career.
You have not given proper consideration to the case presented by my counsel from day one - that this incident never happened at all.

I can go on and on but I see from your statement today that it will be fruitless - it appears as i have been condemned again as I was in the court of appeal. only here we went through a facade of an 8 day hearing!
It is not a coincidence how the PM was able to release a full written statement on your decision barely minutes after you handed your judgment today even before sentencing.
In bowing to the dictates of the political masters, you have become partners in crime for the murder of judicial independence and integrity. You have sold your souls to the devil, bartering your conscience for material gain and comfort and security of office.
You had the best opportunity to redeem yourselves – to right the wrongs of the past and put the judiciary on a clean slate and carve your names for posterity as true defenders of justice.
But instead you chose to remain on the dark side and drown your morals and your scruples in a sea of falsehood and subterfuge. Know you not that you are now wallowing in filth and foulness and the stench of your injustice will permeate through every nook and cranny of this so-called Palace of Justice and I do pity you all.
Yes, you have passed judgement on me – and I will, again for the third time, walk into prison but rest assured my head will be held high. The light shines on me.
But the shame is on you for you will be judged by history as the great cowards of humanity. Sitting on that high horse of judicial power, you have stooped so low to become the underlings of the political masters.
Students of law and professors of jurisprudence will scrutinise your
judgments and as they dissect your reasoning and your decision, your credibility and integrity will be torn to tatters. And you will be exposed as the fraudsters who don the robe of judicial power only to pervert the course of justice.
Do not forget that, as all of us will have to, you too will have to answer to your Maker. You will have to answer why you turned your backs on the principles that you had so solemnly sworn to uphold.
People who come into your court have to bow their heads and address you as ‘My Lords’ but don’t you know that you too will have to answer to your Lord one day? By then you will need more than bowing and prostration to justify why you willfully transgressed Allah’s command as ordained in Surah an-Nisaa, verse 58:
Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice. Excellent is that which Allah instructs you. Indeed, Allah is ever Hearing and Seeing.
Going to jail, i consider a sacrifice i make for the people of this country.
I have fought most of my life on behalf of the people of this country - for the people I am willing to go to jail or face any other consequence.
My struggle will continue, wherever I am sent and whatever is done to me.
To my friends and fellow Malaysians let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support you have given me. And Allah is my witness. I pledge and I will not be silenced, I will fight on for freedom and justice and I will never surrender!

The God Particle

It would be a strange perception coming from a Muslim, can be downright haram to even question the existence of God in Islam. But I’m going to remove the religious cap and simply address where my mental faculties takes me.

God has been defined as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith. The concept of God as described by theologians commonly includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), Omni benevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence. In theism, God is the creator and sustainer of the universe, while in deism, God is the creator, but not the sustainer, of the universe. - Wikipedia

I believe in God. As the creator and sustainer of the universe. I shall address God as HE or IT. He does not care about the nitty-gritty issues that takes place in every corner of its microbial creation. If there are is an obstacle, God simply creates an alternative around it. He is not concerned nor influenced with our human behavior, of our actions whether we do good or bad, his job 24/7 (of earth time) is just create and keep creating. We may view his creation as grand, wonderful or even destructive and since he is on the driver’s seat he just keeps on driving to wherever he/it wants to go.

Monotheism is the belief in the existence of one God or in the oneness of God. In pantheism, God is the universe itself. In atheism, God is purported not to exist, while deemed unknown or unknowable within the context of agnosticism. God has also been conceived as being incorporeal (immaterial), a personal being, the source of all moral obligation, and the "greatest conceivable existent". Many notable medieval philosophers and modern philosophers have developed arguments for and against the existence of God. - Wikipedia

Steven Hawking said we were created out of carbon dust. I believe so and on top of that I also believe there is an element of consciousness that drives creation. It cannot be destroyed and lingers in the various transparent belt of the universe. I like to call it the spiritual karma, a codec of our thoughts and behaviors that awaits another physical body to host when creation creates a perfect situation suitable with our codec like element, the God particle.

I also do not subscribe to the notion that we are alone in the universe. With vast space, billions of galaxies and unchartered distances there must be similar life form like us in the universe. They may have had a hand in our existence on earth but I don’t regard them as God. Because I want to know who created them before declaring them as our God. Furthermore, I have few bones to pick with them as they did a miserable job in creating our body. Our spines are not compatible with earth’s gravity that 50% of us after the age of 40 suffer lower back pain. A design flaw in the cervical disk I would say and I want to talk to the designer in charge.
